The Seagull is lush and dreamlike, leaving the drawing room for lake, field, and forest… Director Mayer fully captures Chekhov’s sharp humor. (‘I’m in mourning,’ Elizabeth Moss’ Masha says when asked why she always wears black. ‘For my life.’) For the uninitiated, The Seagull takes place at the summer estate of Sorin (Brian Dennehy), where a bevy of guests arrive: There’s Mikhail, a poor teacher who’s in love with Masha, who’s in love with Konstantin, who’s in love with Nina, a neighbor girl who’s in love with the famous writer Boris Trigorin, who’s the lover of Irina Arkadina (Annette Bening), who’s only in love with herself. The true magic of the film lies in its performances. Bening is the best she’s ever been as the vain, aging stage actress, with a perfectly naïve Ronan as Nina just discovering her sexual power… Every single actor dazzles in their role. Moss is laugh-out-loud funny, granted the best one-liners as the depressed Masha; Stoll is the perfect combination of smug and insecure; Howle pouts and pontificates like a boy Hamlet who only grows up when it’s too late… It would be worth watching the film for Bening’s performance alone… To Mayer’s credit, the film never feels like a filmed stage production; it’s dynamic and unstuffy, beautifully shot and wonderfully accessible.”—Dana Schwartz, Entertainment Weekly
